Cummings House - ACEO Original Painting Cityscape Landscape

Cummings House (Town Library)
Boxford, Massachusetts
3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
acrylic on watercolor paper

Another interesting old house in our town of Boxford, Massachusetts.
I believe it was originally known as the Howe-Cummings House and dates from around 1841. Julia Cummings and her mother lived there in the late 1800's. The town library at that time was right next door and Julia was such an avid reader that she had her own private key so she could borrow books whenever she liked! When Julia passed away in 1938, she left the house to the town to be used for the village library. It has been serving the town ever since.

This piece will be part of a set for a local fundraiser.
